Like so many people, I’ve been working from home since the beginning of the pandemic.
When it came to working from home, I was well equipped. However, I was tolerating a less-than-ideal ergonomic situation. This didn’t create a problem until the pandemic, as I worked elsewhere most of the time.
After two years of working at home, my manual standing desk broke prevent me from standing up while working.
So, last month I upgraded to a powered standing desk. It cost me $450 and makes all the difference in the world for my physical self. I can’t believe I was sacrificing my physical self to avoid spending such a small amount in hindsight.
You’ve been working from home for nearly two years. What have you been tolerating with the belief you’re going back soon?
Who knows when we’ll get back to being in person. Don’t you deserve to look after yourself and your team right now?
You’ve got this.
